not sure what to do here 1inpink2inblue Switzerland 11952 posts22nd Apr
So this is new to me and I'm wondering what I should do. Dd is 5 and in kindergarten. There is a little girl in her class she talks about a lot that also rides the bus with her. Today she brought home a piece of paper with the little girls name and phone number on it. It is obvious the littlegirl wrote it but on the bottom of the page a adult oobviously rewrote the little girl's name. Dd says she wants to go over to the girls house and play. Now here is my issue. Idk this girl or her parents and we don't live in the best neighborhood. I feel weird calling the number since a child obviously wrote it. I'm glad dd finally has a friend but I'm not really sure how to approach the situation so dd csn spend time with her friend in a way I feel comfortable with. I don't want her over there alone since I don't know them and I'm not even sure if it would be weird for me to call the girl's parents since they don't know me and they may not know she gave dd their number. What do I do?

You could write a note and give it to your daughter so she can give it to her friend who will give it to her parents, with your number on it. You can give them your number so you could speak to them and talk about setting up a play date in a public place.

Maybe call and schedule a play date at a public park or McDonald's so you can get to know the parents and see if you would be comfortable with more play dates at one or the others home in the future?

I would call and ask the parents if they know she gave her the number out. Then maybe set up a play date at a park or something.

I would call the parents and speak with them. You will never really know until you meet them. When I was little I did that all the time lol.

what the other ladies are saying! maybe they dont know she is giving out her number(they might not be ok with it and want to talk to her about asking first)
